Parks and Recreation Month
Join us in celebrating Parks and Recreation month with NRPA (National Recreation and Parks Association) for the whole month of July! This Park and Recreation Month, NRPA is bringing attention to how important it is to rise up and support parks and recreation, because every day, park and recreation professionals rise up for their communities in service of equity, climate-readiness, and overall health and well-being. Parks are at the center of so many experiences and memories — moments that park and recreation professionals help make happen. Our local parks are often our first experiences in nature, our introduction to a favorite hobby or physical activity. They are places to gather with friends and family, spaces to celebrate life’s special moments, spots of respite and healing, sites that connect us with essential community services and so much more. Local parks have been essential throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with many of your community members finding a new appreciation for the essential spaces you manage and vital programs you provide.
This year for Park and Recreation Month, we want to hear YOUR story; what does parks and recreation mean to YOU?
Share your story by posting on social media by posting what parks and recreation means to you and your family. Be sure to use the hash tag #RiseUpJuly and #GoodlettsvilleParks. To be featured on our Facebook Page, email us with your story and a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org
